Slide Switches Squeeze Into Tight-Quarter Designs

For applications where height or surface area is sparse, the AYZ, JS, JSM, and PCM Series slide switches sport a miniature profile and provide options for momentary or momentary-and-latched operation. The 1.5-mm high AYZ Series offer right-angle and surface-mount configurations and are available with one or two poles. They feature double- and triple-throw action and offset or side actuation. Contact resistance is less than 80 milliOhms with life cycles to 10,000 operations. The sub-miniature JS Series features profiles down to 0.7 mm, positive detents, and right or center actuation. Surface or through-hole mountable, they are available in SPDT, DPDT, and DP3T models and specify a contact rating of 6 Vdc at 3A and life cycles to 5,000 operations. Similar to the JS Series, the JSM switches also feature positive detents and surface or through-hole mounting. Available in SPDT and SP3T models with maintained and momentary functions, contact rating is 4 Vdc at 0.3A with a lifespan to 10,000 cycles. The PCM Series ultra-miniature, surface-mount slide switches are available in SPDT and SP3T models with a contact rating of 6 Vdc at 0.3A and a mechanical life to 50,000 cycles. Prices for the JSM Series range from $0.60 to $0.70 each in volume C&K COMPONENTS, Newton, MA. (800) 635-5936.
